SMART ARRAY CONTROLLER 3100 ES

Hi i am trying to install windows 2k on a prolient 7000, with a 3100es controller.

I do not have the smart start cd, i have downloaded the drivers for the card from HP. But when trying to install the driver in the windows 2k setup, it says it cannot locate txtsetup.oem file.

Does anyone know where i can find this file for this controller card!

Cheers

You have a relative "Old Machine" that is only supported up to that version, 5.50, of the Smart Start CD.

If you don't want o download all, then download parts of it :)
